How can we make people feel comfortable with robots in their homes?

Project was born of a simple question: How can we design robots that people trust in their homes? Over the project lifecycle, the team behind Project partnered with Samsung Electronics to test leading brands of robot vacuum cleaners and conduct comprehensive ethnographic user research to uncover the design breakdowns that damage trust in autonomous devices—and the innovative design modalities that can restore it. The result? POWERbot Lumos. An in-home robot that does more than clean your floor, serving as a unified home health system that cares for our homes, our health and our families.
